Hello, I have been looking for a decent 'DayZ' type modpack for minecraft, minecraft is a highly versatile platform and it is easier to model. Anyhow, all of the modpacks I found had bad servers, crafting dead is P2W, decimation has a lot of internet lag and also has P2W aspects such as TP for donators, which destroys satisfaction of kill if they can tp back. I want to attempt to make my own modpack and server for that modpack, I plan to release the modpack on technic as it is I think one of the easiest ways to play modpacks, however, I am not sure how to start.
I would like to ask, what is the best version of minecraft to use for making a custom mod from scratch? I will start by making a map for the server and get ideas as I go along.
Note: My intentions for making this mod/modpack are to make an enjoyable DayZ type minecraft modpack, I will put effort into it once I figure things out and if I have time, I am not making this mod to try to make a cashgrab server. I will make the guns I add feel like guns, the recoil will make sense, and bullet trajectory will also make sense.
